PlayStation 4 6.50 update enables remote play on iOS devices

Before setting the app up, make sure that your PS4 is running the latest v6.50 update.

The PS4 Remote Play app will connect with your PS4 for your on your iOS device.

Like on other devices, Sony has included on-screen touch controls that you can use to navigate the menus of the PS4 as well as play games, but you're going to need a physical controller to get the most out of the iOS app. Whether or not that means remote play simply won't work with older devices is unknown, but we probably shouldn't be surprised if that's the case.

Another big limitation is that you can not pair the PS4 Dualshock controller to iPhone/iPad. Not all games are compatible with the remote play features.

Another package sparked an evacuation Wednesday at the Royal Bank of Scotland headquarters in Edinburgh. One such line is the possibility that the packages have come from Ireland.

Today's system software update for the PlayStation 4 finally brings official remote play to iOS devices. There is no support for tvOS on Apple TV.

Players can use the app to display their PlayStation 4's screen on their iOS device, use their device as a controller, join voice chats, and enter text using the device's keyboard. And as you might expect, you'll need to have a solid Internet connection to play, so sticking to Wi-Fi whenever possible might also be a good thing. Instead, I was able to download it via this link on the web on my phone, which then directed me to the appropriate page on the App Store.

Other new features include the ability to choose 720p when broadcasting from Niconico Live.

The feature allows swapping the "enter" button from the circle to the X. Unfortunately, this appears to be available only in certain specific countries. If that qualifier applies to you, go to your PS4's Settings, then scroll down to System, and you'll find a toggle.
